Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State, has explained why he withdrew from the 2023 presidential race and declared his support for former Lagos State governor, Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

Fayemi said he threw his weight behind Tinubu because he believed the former governor is tested and had more experience to lead the country to the right direction.

The governor, who stated this in a series of tweets on Sunday evening, disclosed he spent the weekend with Tinubu, who he described as a mentor and leader.

According to him: “Tinubu is one person that I have worked with in the democratic struggles and was one of the wheels on which the engine of NADECO spun in the dark days of authoritarian rule.
